William Stacy[edit]

Hi ColWilliam. I nominated William Stacy to appear on the Main Page under the Did you know... section. The nomination hook appears here. There is a five day from creation window for DYK nominations, so I wanted to make sure it was in the cue. Please feel free to revise the nomination hook as you see fit. Great job on the article. -- Jreferee (Talk) 02:29, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

DYK[edit]

Updated DYK query On 28 June, 2007, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article William Stacy, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

Awards[edit]

Exceptional newcomer.jpg The Exceptional Newcomer Award
I was shocked when I found out that William Stacy was your first series of edits on Wikipedia, let alone your first article. I would've guessed you've been around for years. Anyway, here's your first well-deserved barnstar, welcome to Wikipedia! Wizardman 21:49, 28 June 2007 (UTC)

Hello! You may be interested in joining the American Revolutionary War task force. Cheers! —Kevin Myers 12:45, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

William Stacy[edit]

I noticed you put this up for A class review at WP:BIO, and it hasn't gotten much of a response, so I thought I'd suggest another review option: WP:MilHist's A class review process. I'd be happy to review it myself, but I fear I've already reached my limit of productive reviewing today. Maralia (talk) 01:16, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Hello, Maralia and thank you. At about the same time that I received your note, I also received a review and indication of support from a biography A-class review of this article. So, I'm hoping to get one more review under WP:BIO to achieve A-class. Could you possibly review the article under WP:BIO? Many thanks, ColWilliam (talk) 16:43, 31 January 2008 (UTC)
I had just started an FA review when I got your message, but I'll try to get to this soon. Maralia (talk) 18:34, 31 January 2008 (UTC)
Congratulations An article you listed for assessment review at WikiProject Ohio has been named a good article. The review will be deleted in 3 days. Thanks for your great work. §tepshep¡Talk to me! 23:37, 28 March 2008 (UTC)

Benjamin Tupper[edit]

Great work on the Benjamin Tupper article. This is a good candidate for Wikipedia:Did You Know, in case you're interested in submitting it. Cheers! —Kevin Myers 22:37, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

DYK[edit]

Updated DYK query On 22 March, 2008, Did you know? was updated with a fact from the article Benjamin Tupper, which you created or substantially expanded. If you know of another interesting fact from a recently created article, then please suggest it on the Did you know? talk page.

As for the A-class review, I'll take a look, though peer review isn't my specialty. (I'm actually thinking about trying to get A-class removed, as it's not too useful). --Wizardman 02:19, 22 March 2008 (UTC)

Woodbridge Ref.[edit]

I've been organizing yourBenjamin Ruggles Woodbridge artilce lately. Its a great article, but it needs to be organized and there needs to be more on his early life. Do you know where I could get a good reference on his early life and his life after the revolution?--(Wikipedian1234 (talk) 21:10, 26 April 2008 (UTC))

Notification of automated file description generation[edit]

Your upload of File:BigBottomMassacreObelisk.jpg or contribution to its description is noted, and thanks (even if belatedly) for your contribution. In order to help make better use of the media, an attempt has been made by an automated process to identify and add certain information to the media's description page.

This notification is placed on your talk page because a bot has identified you either as the uploader of the file, or as a contributor to its metadata. It would be appreciated if you could carefully review the information the bot added. To opt out of these notifications, please follow the instructions here. Thanks!

ArbCom elections are now open![edit]

Hi,
You appear to be eligible to vote in the current Arbitration Committee election. The Arbitration Committee is the panel of editors responsible for conducting the Wikipedia arbitration process. It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.

File permission problem with File:BravestOfTheBrave.jpg[edit]

Thanks for uploading File:BravestOfTheBrave.jpg. I noticed that while you provided a valid copyright licensing tag, there is no proof that the creator of the file has agreed to release it under the given license.

If you are the copyright holder for this media entirely yourself but have previously published it elsewhere (especially online), please either

  • make a note permitting reuse under the CC-BY-SA or another acceptable free license (see this list) at the site of the original publication; or
  • Send an email from an address associated with the original publication to permissions-en@wikimedia.org, stating your ownership of the material and your intention to publish it under a free license. You can find a sample permission letter here. If you take this step, add {{OTRS pending}} to the file description page to prevent premature deletion.

If you did not create it entirely yourself, please ask the person who created the file to take one of the two steps listed above, or if the owner of the file has already given their permission to you via email, please forward that email to permissions-en@wikimedia.org.

If you believe the media meets the criteria at Wikipedia:Non-free content, use a tag such as {{non-free fair use}} or one of the other tags listed at Wikipedia:File copyright tags#Fair use, and add a rationale justifying the file's use on the article or articles where it is included. See Wikipedia:File copyright tags for the full list of copyright tags that you can use.

If you have uploaded other files, consider checking that you have provided evidence that their copyright owners have agreed to license their works under the tags you supplied, too. You can find a list of files you have created in your upload log. Files lacking evidence of permission may be deleted one week after they have been tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. You may wish to read Wikipedia's image use policy. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

ATTENTION: This is an automated, BOT-generated message. This bot DID NOT nominate your file(s) for deletion; please refer to the page history of each individual file for details. Thanks, FastilyBot (talk) 03:00, 29 October 2016 (UTC)
